[Es2] Question about oil pressure sender

Hey guys,

For those that have done the engine swap, did you use the two-pronged 0.3 bar sender that came with the 3B or did you use the CQ's sender? They have different part numbers, but look nearly identical. The reason I ask is that I used the 3B sender and I'm wondering if that is tripping the Autocheck oil pressure warning. Perhaps the 3B sender isn't compatible with the CQ's Autocheck? There is a guy on Audiworld who is experiencing a similar problem, having just installed auxilliary gauges. His oil pressure gauge reads right (so does mine) but his idiot light comes on (so does mine). He seems to think that he too has the wrong sender. Here's his thread...


Anyway, I'm hoping one of you might be able to answer this. If I can determine that the pressure warning is false, and I am indeed getting correct pressure, then I will feel more confident in letting the engine run for a while.
